SINGAPORE — Utilities firm SP Group has expanded its network of electric-vehicle charging points to 200 islandwide.

In a statement on Monday (Sept 9), the firm said that among the 200 points are 52 direct-current fast chargers that can fully power up a car in 30 minutes.

By the end of next year, the company aims to build 1,000 charging points, 250 of which will be fast chargers.

The other 750 points will be alternating-current ones, which take up to an hour for a full charge. 

SP’s latest expansion comes after tie-ups with landlords such as CapitaLand, City Developments, Lendlease, Resorts World Sentosa and Soilbuild Group Holdings to install charging points at some properties.

These include Singapore’s first direct-current points in the Central Business District, starting with Republic Plaza in Raffles Place, the first commercial building in the area to house a fast charger.

Other new charging points are in places such as Shaw Centre, Resorts World Sentosa and Paya Lebar Quarter. 

Mr Goh Chee Kiong, SP’s head of strategic development, said the firm’s large public network of charging points would “reduce range anxiety and shorten the time needed” to charge electric vehicles.

“Our latest partnerships reflect the strong momentum by property owners to welcome electric vehicles,” he added. 

Drivers can use the SP Utilities mobile app to find the nearest charging points, receive updates on their charging sessions and make payment. 

Prices — calculated by kilowatt hour (kWh), a unit of measurement for electricity consumption — are adjusted periodically based on prevailing electricity costs. 

The present charging rates are S$0.4746 per kWh for the 50kW direct-current fast charger, and S$0.4156 per kWh for the 43kW alternating-current charger, SP Group told TODAY.
